Through FHR’s clubhouses, employment is offered to businesses in the following levels of employment: Transitional Employment: Members are linked with an independent business in the community for a period of six-to-nine months on a part-time basis. During this time, clubhouse staff work with the member through a structured program that includes on and off-site support. Supported Employment: FHR’s clubhouse maintains a relationship with the working member and the employer. Members and staff in partnership determine the type, frequency, and location of the desired workforce support. Independent Employment: Members are employed by a business in the community where they are solely responsible for that position. Ongoing support and encouragement are provided for the member at the clubhouse, if requested.
Clubhouse members receive one-on-one assistance in furthering their education and professional development. This includes assistance with registration, financial aid application, and course planning, as well as ongoing educational supports for GED, trade school, and university educational programs.
